A poetry chapbook that takes you through one afterlife after another ...

Sample: "too many heartbeats"
I went inside a building, but only once:
they were huge height-bent towers
rising like fingers
almost grasping the sun in a fist.
and inside, even in the quietest corner,
there were too many heartbeats;
it became a mad symphony.
BEAT followed me for days.
As much as I needed someone,
these millions are just too much,
ever motion, can't make sense of it!
I steal a pillow from a hospital
so I can hide my head.
Sample: "trampling feet"
He awoke to trampling feet
the whole street was aflight
Screams from Shakespeare,
curses from comic books @#$!
They ran from the machines
which thundered down from the air
